Voting Buttons in Lotus Notes
Mat Newman    

One of the questions about Lotus Notes I see frequently is about Voting buttons.  While it is certainly possible to modify the mail database template to include this functionality, a simpler implementation is to use a shared database that enables users to ask questions, choose some recipients and then have an email message sent to those people that contains a doc-link directing the recipient to their answer document.

A couple of years ago I knocked up a sample application for a customer to demonstrate this functionality, I've enclosed it here so you can customise and share.

Just change the ACL to include your own users group as Authors so the default security is enabled. Sign the application with an ID that's trusted to execute code. Then share with your users.

The database could easily be customised to modify the type of questions and responses required, eg: Yes/No, multiple choice, etc...

Voting Buttons in Lotus Notes? Sure ... it's Notes! Enjoy.

Ok Timmy ...
Mon, May 12th 2014 9:21p   Mat Newman
The first time we met face to face, we engaged in a deeply geeky conversation about manipulating arrays of rich text objects that I brought to him late one night at Kimono's. It was my first Lotusphere back in 2008 and I had been hunting down the legends of the community to meet them in person for the first time. Tim was one of the folks at the top of my list that I had to meet, for reasons that many others have written about today in lament of his passing. Yes, Tim was a Genius.

Sametime contacts, a couple of things you might not know
Thu, May 1st 2014 2:06a   Mat Newman
One of my favourite features of IBM Sametime integration within the Notes client's side-bar is the way you can utilise contacts with Notes address features in Email, Calendar Meeting Entries and Group To-Do's. Many just use their Sametime contact list as a method of looking up contact details, or seeing whether someone is online. But there are some great features of the Sametime contact list that enable you to easily address messages, meetings, To-Dos, and even utilise the contacts from wi [read] Keywords: ibm notes notes client sametime email integration

This year at Connect I presented a session "IBM Worklight for IBM Domino Developers". The idea was to show Domino Dev's how easy it was to transition from creating pure browser-based applications utilising XPages with the Extension Library + Mobile Controls that are included natively with Domino 9 to creating a native application utilising IBM Worklight which has IBM DOMINO as the back end data service. There were three demonstrations included within the presentation: Building a mobile [read] Keywords: domino ibm notes xpages application applications database eclipse mobile properties
